A teacher at Blackville School got a makeover in recognition of the school's fundraising campaign for the Josie Foundation.

Mr. Johnston pledged to have his beard (and eyebrows) dyed if the students and staff could raise $500 for the Josie Foundation. Almost $500 was raised at the middle school dance on Thursday evening, November 28, and other fundraising efforts are continuing into next week.

The Josie Foundation is a non-profit organization whose aim is to establish, receive and maintain a fund for the relief of economic hardship for individuals (families) within the Miramichi area who may be encountering financial difficulty as a result of chronic illness.

The Josie Foundation's colour is a dark maroon, however purple was used to make his beard colour even more dramatic.
